Question [Q] Can't find info about switching from stock to custom rom

Dear comunity,

I might be a complete idiot, but I've spent several hours already reading the forum and I can't find some kind of tutorial or steps I have to take to install custom recovery on N9005.

Is it really that I just need to flash recovery via Odin and that is it?

My current status: totally stock with latest 4.4.2 update
SM-N9005
N9005XXUENB1
KOT49H.N9005XXUENB4
SE for Android status: enforcing
SEPF_SM-N9005_4.4.2_0005

I don't mind tripping Knox. I want to flash Omega v11 rom.

(Again, I am sorry that I am probably asking something very obvious, but I seem to be lost ...)

Thank you!

Yup pretty much grab TWRP / PhilZ CWM /CWM and flash via ODIN and you're good to go, make sure reactivation lock is off in securty settings before you flash a custom ROM.

Thank you!
first...
root your device with CF-Autoroot, find the one for 4.4.2. Follow his instructions to flash via ODIN.
Once you are rooted, then you can consider to use CWM recovery.
From what I have read so far, the best recovery to use under 4.4.2 is CWM released by ChengLu (credits to him), which gives no problem in flashing the custom ROM.
But not avoiding other possibilities that other recovery also reported to be worked on some device by some users.

PS : both CF-Autoroot and CWM Chenglu are flashed from ODIN. Follow their instructions (especially to enable USB debugging & OFF Reactivation Lock.

Cheers & good luck.

Seems way too complicated, I just flashed TWRP via Odin and that was it.

No need to root before flashing a custom recovery for the record
